Re: Tape counter/time code not working

Just a guess here...

Are there colons (:) showing between each pair of zeroes? If not, you have it set on UB instead of TC.

00 00 00 00 is UB
00:00:00:00 is TC

UB doesn't move because they are User Bits set by you.

Re: Tape counter/time code not working

Hi Guys,

I still can get this to work, I have pushed the button on the control panel on to of the camera and it cycles through have the colons and not having them.

Is there a menu setting I need to change?

Thanks,
Dave.
